Founded in 2021, the Gift of India Yoga School has several teachers covering most parts of Devon and Dorset. Teacher training courses are of the highest standard and are commended by recognised Yoga organisations.

We base our activities on the four As: 

 

  • Ambition: We want to be and to become good yoga teachers

  • Aspiration: We aim to become “good people” by following the yoga principles and to minimise our Ego-tendencies. We want to pass these aims on to our students.

  • Authenticity: We stay individuals with our own history and potential. Students should not become clones of their teachers but are encouraged to develop their individual styles. 

  • Attitude: As teachers, we will work in the attitude of Seva, selfless service. We are all a part of a greater whole. We will act in service to the welfare of all, by sharing the teachings of Yoga principles.

''We take pride in our non-hierarchical ethos. All teachers and students have the same say. We support each other, accept, and share. No one is left alone with a frightening task. We teach and train each other.''

Join us.

The school is based on the Indian heritage and the practice of the eight limbs. We aim to integrate Indian philosophy into Western society, to enable you to live in a more yogic way. 

 

The relationship between the participants, teachers, and students of the school is based on the Yamas, the first limb of Patanjali’s Yoga. All participants are dedicated to a life following the Yoga principles and work on a yogic transformation for themselves and for the people they teach.
